Track Your Way Along The Walk [Beta 3.0]

Newport Harbor Walk
South Newport Harbor
| By using Google Maps you are
able to use a smart device such as an Android or iPhone to track where you are
along the Harbor Walk trail, which is drawn as a magenta line on a base Google
Map. We are working on a Follow the Walk, but because the walk wanders across
private property and rights of way over private property ... not just city
streets and sidewalks ... we are on hold waiting for more updates from Google.
This App does use up battery so keep that in mind.
We look forward to presenting a
"follow the magenta line" once we have more options from Google. Meanwhile,
here is what you need to do:
|1. You need an active Google Account. Click
here to do that.
|2. Make sure you have the free Google Map App
installed from your phone's App store ... and GPS ON in
|3. Add Maps to the Google Maps App on your Phone by following this
link, confirm that you have these two maps shown, then
click "Save to Drive." You can add maps to your Google Map App from your
Open Map on Phone -- hitting the Google Map icon
open the Google Map App.
|5. Once in Google Maps
go to "Your Places"
if you don't get this
page ... click and hold left side of screen and slide right ... or touch the
gray box in the top left corner.
| 6. Select the map in
this next window
by scrolling down to "maps" and click on that map.
Unfortunately they like to insert a lot
of "other stuff" before you find
|7. The next screen should be
and somewhat look like
this. > > >
|8. Pick a
spot to navigate to ... and press the blue arrow. Photo icons, however, may not
be ideally located to navigate to, especially if they are not on
|9. Your choice will be
highlighted with a White Halo.
Press the Walk to Button and a
navigation map pops up.
Hit the START NAVIGATION Link.
|10. Nearly all the icons have, or
will eventually have, more information linked to them.
Here is how to
dig down into the database.
Press on an icon, a data page pops up with
photo(s) or reference links(s). Pressing on a photo link will pop up a larger photo.
Good Luck and remember this is a Beta version ... we are always open to input.
